Hey Champs roots can be traced outside of Chicago in nearby Rockford, where band members Saam Hagshenas (Vocals, Guitar) and Jonathan Marks (Drums) discovered their love of music at a young age. They were discovered by Lupe Fiasco in the fall of 2008, who took them on a nation-wide tour. Their music incorporates influences from disco, house and indie rock to the power-pop of Rockfords hometown heroes Cheap Trick and the synth-heavy productions of Giorgio Moroder and Trevor Horn. Their infectious sound has garnered fans and made them blog and radio darlings from Portland to Paris to Porto Alegre.
